1 The Daguerreotype Patent, The British Government, and The Royal Society by R. Derek Wood [History of Photography, Vol. 4, No. 1 (January 1980), pp. 53 9] It has often been held that Daguerre obtained a patent in England because he hoped either the British Government or the Royal Society would subsequently purchase it. Why Daguerre should single out England in this way is difficult to guess (or perhaps he really did intend to do the same in other countries), but certainly the way in which Daguerre had his discovery announced in Paris, through establishment members of the Academy of Sciences, makes it plausible that he thought the same approach would work in England. However, such an idea by Daguerre would have been mistaken because no relationship existed between the Royal Society and the British Government, a situation unlike the highly structured, centralized and integrated patronage of science and technology in France. No definite evidence of any such intention of Daguerre or his representatives to ask the British Government to by the patent has been available. Surprisingly, even the contract made by Daguerre with E. D. Letault on 19th February to go to England to sell the patent does not specifically mention the British Government, the Royal Society or, indeed, any public organization. However, satisfactory contemporary evidence is available from one document preserved at the Public Record Office in London. It is a six page memorial dated 30th March 1840, written by Miles Berry on behalf of Daguerre to the Board of the Treasury, and asks if the government would purchase the rights of the daguerreotype for the purpose of throwing it open in England for the benefit of the public and preventing this important discovery being fettered or limited by individual interest or exertion. The decision reached at the Treasury the following day was Inform party that Parliament has placed no funds at the disposal of the Treasury from which a purchase of this description could be made Contract between Daguerre, Niépce and E. D. Letault made on 19th February 1840, translated into English in G. Potonniée s Two unpublished documents concerning the history of daguerreotype, Photographic Journal, Vol. 78 (January 1938), pp Treasury Board Papers 1840, Public Record Office, London (at Kew): T1/4429/7150.

2 2 R. D. Wood It is conceivable that a letter written to Daguerre by Sir John Herschel on 1st August could have at least encouraged Daguerre to think that the Royal Society was positively interested in his technique. Even so, this letter would not have been the prime stimulus for Daguerre to seek a patent in England because he had certainly approached Miles Berry before that date. Along with other Fellows of the Royal Society, Herschel was then busy (his own research on photographic chemistry thereby suffering) in providing guidance on scientific studies to be carried out on the voyage of exploration and research to the Antarctic, lead by Captain J. C. Ross. Herschel s letter to Daguerre was written in the name of the Royal Society. It asks if sealed instructions on the daguerreotype technique, at that time still Daguerre s secret, could be supplied to the Antarctic expedition. The two ships, Erebus and Terror, were due to leave England within a few weeks and were to be away for more than three years. The idea expressed in Herschel s letter was that instructions would not be opened until after the ships had sailed. Unfortunately, a reply by Daguerre is not known. It is also worth noting here that there were thoughts of using not only the daguerreotype but also photography on paper during the Antarctic voyage. Miles Berry, in his memorial of 30th March 1840, suggested to the Treasury Board that they might refer the matter of the daguerreotype patent to the consideration of the Royal Society or any other learned or scientific body or persons as your lordship may think fit to report thereon. A preliminary search of official correspondence and committee minutes of the Royal Society has not revealed any approach by either Miles Berry or Daguerre s special envoy, E. D. Letault, around the period of February and March 1840, when they were first trying to sell the patent. However, a letter amongst the personal correspondence of Sir John W. Lubbock, who was the Treasurer and the Vice President of the Royal Society, has survived which concerns the sale of the daguerreotype patent, but was written by Antoine Claudet. In March 1840, at his shop for glassware at 89 High Holborn, Claudet had a display of daguerreotype views obtained from Paris (they were for sale for one to four guineas or more). A Colonel Bonner (probably John A. Bonner, 3. Letter dated 1st August 1839 from Sir John Herschel to L. J. M. Daguerre. Autograph letter collection, Wellcome Institute of the History of Medicine, London. By a coincidence, the journals of Robert McCormick, surgeon (and naturalist) of the Antarctic expedition, also exist (MSS ) amongst the manuscript collections at the Wellcome Institute. McCormick was interested in using the photographic drawing technique during the voyage and visited W. H. F. Talbot about it; Talbot was not keen to be involved. History of Photography, 1980

3 Daguerreotype Patent and The Royal Society 3 who was at that time seeking successfully to become a Fellow of the Royal Society) who came to the shop to look at the daguerreotypes told Claudet that a soirée was being held a few days later by the Marquis of Northampton, the President of the Royal Society, and that it would be nice if he could provide a selection of these pictures to be exhibited there. Bonner told Claudet to write to Sir John Lubbock, and Claudet did this on Thursday, 12th March 1840, 4 offering to make available daguerreotype views of Italy (obviously Lerebours pictures) for the soirée to be held on the following Saturday, 14th March It does not seem likely that Claudet was privately acquainted with Lubbock but, since he added in his letter We want also to thank you for recommending us to many of your friends who have honoured us with their visits, it is obvious that Lubbock s name was at least familiar to him. Lubbock s reply is not known, but two days later Claudet wrote again. This second letter is of particular interest because it concerns the sale of the daguerreotype patent and is dated 14th March It was written on a Saturday, on the same day as the Marquis of Northampton s soirée, and would surely have accompanied the delivery of the daguerreotype views to Lubbock for display that evening. Like Claudet s earlier letter, it was written in French. Claudet set out his ideas on the advantages to the country if the use of the daguerreotype technique was not hindered by the existence of the patent. He suggested to Lubbock that, as 3000 was the price asked for the rights to the patent, it would be possible to make the technique available to everybody in England if 300 people could be found who were willing to subscribe 10 each. Lubbock s reply to Claudet is not known, nor is there any evidence that Lubbock mentioned the idea to fellow guests at the soirée that evening. Claudet was obviously an optimist in supposing that 300 of les hautes classes de la Société Anglaise could be found who were willing to give up 10 for such a purpose. Within two weeks of writing to Lubbock, Claudet signed an Indenture on the 25th March 1840, 6 not to purchase the patent, but only to 4. Letter (in French) dated 12th March 1840, A. Claudet to J. W.

It has often been presumed that Claudet obtained a licence late in 1839, but this unreliable assumption must originate only [despite comments of J. Johnson, Photographic News (1868), pp ] from Claudet s reminiscences of a quarter of a century later (in a letter of 1865), published after he died, in the British Journal of Photography (21st February 1868), p. 90. As is so common with this type of reminiscence, it shows ample internal evidence of a rough and ready recall of the sequence and dating of much earlier events. It is an example of how undue emphasis should not be given to this type of source, unless supported by some contemporary evidence as well. January 1980, Vol. 4, No. 1, pp

4 4 R. D. Wood obtain a licence from Miles Berry to use the daguerreotype technique. This cost him 200, and it is worth noting that the document was signed five days before Miles Berry asked the Treasury and Government to buy the patent. It was probably not a wise idea to sell a licence before the patent was sold. Perhaps Miles Berry and his partner, William Newton, had realized that the patent would not be easy to sell and that 200 would be worth having meanwhile. Almost inevitably the existence of Claudet s licence made the sale of the patent even less straightforward in the future. 7 Claudet s letter to Lubbock suggesting a subscription fund to purchase the daguerreotype patent now has a particularly tantalizing aspect. This is not so much because of the part played by him (although the letter does add a little to our knowledge of Claudet s well known 8 role as an early daguerreotypist in London), but because the letter was written to Sir John Lubbock; tantalizing, because for more than 10 years Lubbock had had some type of business involvement with Miles Berry. J. W. Lubbock ( ) 9 was of considerable prominence not only in the Royal Society 10 but also in the British Association for the Advancement of Science, the administration of the University of London, and in the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. His statistical analysis of tides became accepted as an important advance in the field, and he wrote 73 scientific papers, mainly on mathematical aspects of meteorology and astronomy. But he was also a man of commerce, insurance and banking and, quite obviously, a man of great energy. However, it is said that he never liked business. A letter written to Lubbock in 1830 by the London patent agent Miles Berry shows that they entered into an agreement (but its exact nature was not 7. Affidavits of the case Beard v. Claudet filed in July 1841 (C31/618 part 2, Public Record Office, London) provide an interesting glimpse of negotiations that took place in May 1841 regarding Beard s purchase of the patent. Newton and Berry were aware that Claudet s licence could cause problems to the new owner, but Beard was not. Obviously Beard would not have wanted Claudet s established studio to continue as a rival in London. Within only a few weeks of purchasing the patent on 23rd June 1841 Beard was complaining that he would not have paid as much as 1050 if he had known of the existence of doubts that Claudet s licence could not easily be terminated. 8.

Gill, The Photographic Journal, Vol. 107 (December 1967), pp Brief accounts of J. W. Lubbock s life are in the Dictionary of National Biography, Vol. 34 (1893), pp , and Proceedings of the Royal Society, London, Vol. 15 ( ), p.xxxii. 10. He became Treasurer of the Society in 1830, and immediately set the financial affairs on a firmer base, a need long overdue. He also became very influential in the Society s general affairs throughout the 1830s, and is now counted amongst those reformers who, like Sir John Herschel and William Grove, were then aiming for greater professionalism within the Society.

5 Daguerreotype Patent and The Royal Society 5 discussed there) which almost certainly involved Lubbock being kept quite generally informed of promising inventions. Miles Berry supplied such information to him, for example, in 1836 and It is often difficult to distinguish official business from his own personal affairs in Lubbock s correspondence, but it is extremely unlikely that Berry s letters were related to any duty undertaken by Lubbock either on behalf of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (although that is just conceivable) or on behalf of the Royal Society. The very regrettable situation at this time was exactly that the Royal Society played such a small part, and had no funds available (nor was granted any by the Government) for the encouragement of research and development of inventions. Lubbock would have been very well aware of this situation, and it is entirely fitting that he would be personally interested in organizing financial support for such purposes. Perhaps some private speculation was also involved. Antoine Claudet would surely have been intrigued to have known that Lubbock had private business dealings with Miles Berry. Unfortunately, this is the limit of our knowledge also because we do not, in fact, have any evidence that Berry ever discussed the daguerreotype patent with Lubbock. Ample evidence exists for Lubbock s interest in the whole range of photographic activities during 1839 and 1840, and for his personal contact with several of photography s inventors and scientists. Bearing in mind his administrative abilities, along with his knowledge of science, it may be a matter of regret that Lubbock did not appear subsequently to become involved in the commercial development of photography. His extensive correspondence has survived and, in 1962, was presented as a permanent loan to the Royal Society in London. It is worthy of study, for Sir John Lubbock provides yet another avenue of information requiring exploration in the history of the earliest photographic invention and its development. In February 1840 Lubbock obtained a price list (see Figure 5) of daguerreotype apparatus, and on of the cameras seems to have been delivered 12 while he (with his wife and children were staying at his parents home at 11.

There is also one letter of 1847 and three of 1855 (N255 N258) concerning patents being prepared for Lubbock by William Newton and Company, which had been Newton and Berry before Berry became ill in the early 1840s. 12. By the time J. W. Lubbock s son, Lord Avebury, died in 1913 there was a rather quaint family recollection that the five year old boy assisted (or rather, as at the end of his life he thought likely, impeded ) the taking of the first picture.

6 6 R. D. Wood Mitcham before his father died later in the year. Apart from J. W. Lubbock s personal interest in the daguerreotype, it must be concluded that here was little official stimulus from any person associated with the Royal Society to encourage and exploit the use of the daguerreotype technique. Nevertheless, the Royal Society has a very considerable importance in the earliest growth of photographic science. This is not because the Society had any intimate involvement with W. H. F. Talbot in 1839; on the contrary, Talbot s wish to publish in the journals of the Royal Society and his eagerness to obtain priority of publication caused unhappiness and difficulties for the administrators of the Society. 13 Talbot was a Fellow of the Royal Society, but he almost never became involved in any duty or support of their affairs, or indeed in work for other learned societies; he was too preoccupied with his own self promotion. The importance of the Royal Society for the advancement of early photography is connected with the fact that a platform was provided for Sir John Herschel s researches and publications. Herschel devoted his wide knowledge to research into photographic chemistry, unhampered by any selfish concern. Indeed, if anything hindered Herschel s research it was his readiness to support others and to further the causes of the scientific community. 14th March 1839, when Herschel s first stimulating and influential paper 14 was read at the Royal Society, was an auspicious date for photography, and so was the time when his fine work on photographic chemistry was presented in the course of three meetings held at the Royal Society in the last two weeks of February and the first week of March Indeed, February and March 1840 was also a period of great significance for the daguerreotype patent in England, as can be seen from the information provided in another article. 16 In the autumn of 1840, officials of the Royal Society had the task of awarding medals of the Society for outstanding scientific work. Two Royal Medals were presented each year, and the Rumford Medal for the most important discovery on Heat or Light was awarded every second year. 13.

7 Daguerreotype Patent and The Royal Society 7 Subcommittees discussed the matter first and made recommendations to the main Council of the Royal Society. Daguerre s name was brought forward in On the 27th October 1840 a combined meeting of the Chemistry and Physics Committees, with nine members 17 present, met to discuss the question and reported as follows: Took into consideration the reference of the council of the 15th October respecting the award of the Rumford Medal. Resolved that by circumstances M. Daguerre s eminent discoveries in Photography being in the opinion of this committee excluded from the award of the Rumford Medal, the committee decline recommending his paper on that subject for the present biennial award. The following names were proposed: Sir John Herschel, Mr Fox Talbot, M. [J. B.] Biot, M. [H. V.] Regnault. The committee having proceeded to ballot, it was found no name had a majority of the whole committee. That this result be communicated to the council. 18 Four members of this committee (Michael Faraday, James Forbes, Charles Wheatstone and W. H. Christie) were also members of the Society s Physic Committee. In this capacity they again considered the matter, indeed on the same day, and were able to reach a decision They also recommended the award of the Royal Medal to Sir John Herschel for his photographic researches. 19 They also recommended the Rumford Medal be given to J. B. Biot for his researches in the circular polarization of light, not for his papers on photography that had been published by the Paris Academy of Sciences. The Council of the Royal Society considered the proposals on the 19th November and agreed to present the medals as suggested to Biot and Herschel. Two years later W. H. F. Talbot was awarded the next Rumford Medal for his discoveries and improvements in photography. It was a just situation because Talbot s early photogenic drawing technique of 1839 was by no means a particularly significant discovery, and the progress of photography would not have suffered if it had never been published, whereas Talbot s later calotype process certainly deserved a medal. It would have been interesting to have known the Chemistry Committee s reasons on the 27th October 1849 for the circumstances that excluded Daguerre s eminent discoveries from receiving the Royal Society award. The 17. The chemistry Committee and Physics Committee had 15 appointed members each, but usually only half the members attended meetings. The nine present at the combined meeting of 27th October 1840 were Faraday (the chairman), Forbes, Wheatstone, Christie, J. G. Children, J. F. Daniell, Charles Daubeny, T. Graham and P. M. Roget. 18.

8 8 R. D. Wood daguerreotype technique did, of course, feature at their meetings even though no official commitment had been made regarding the patent. The daguerreotype process could lead no further and, looking back over 140 years of photographic discoveries, one must conclude that the two awards in 1840 and 1842 were well judged.

Herschel s Letter to Daguerre In the article on The daguerreotype patent, the British Government, and the Royal Society published in History of Photography, January 1980, Vol.4, pp.53 59, attention was drawn to significant documents relating to the patent for the Daguerreotype taken out in England in 1839 by a London patent agent, Miles Berry, on behalf of Daguerre. As some interest has been shown in these documents during the twenty years since the appearance of the article, publication of the full texts would obviously be a welcome addition to the literature on the early history of photography. The first item is a letter now in the Autograph Letter Collection of the Wellcome Institute of the History of Medicine, London. It was purchased in Paris in June # This letter to L. J. M. Daguerre was written on 1 August 1839 by Sir John Herschel on behalf of the Royal Society. Daguerre's discovery had been publicised since January of that year and Daguerre had displayed daguerreotypes to many people in Paris. Herschel himself had been shown some during a visit to Paris in May ( ). But until Daguerre obtained a pension from the French Government, no details of the technique were released until 19th August No reply from Daguerre is known. [Addressed to] A Monsr Monsr.

Wood purpose of procuring, if possible, an apparatus with the proper Camera Obscura and 100 plates properly prepared to receive impressions, and with instructions for its use and for executing the singular and extraordinary process by which you have been able to effect such wonders If the request appears to you extraordinary, the circumstances of the case will explain it. Captain Ross (the discoverer of the Northern Magnetic Pole) is about to proceed on a Voyage of Discovery and circumnavigation of the Antarctic Pole, in command of two Ships, the Terror and Erebus, admirably equipped and every way furnished with instruments of Science and Art. Now the Council of the Royal Society are earnestly desirous that the Expedition should sail provided with the invaluable resources furnished by the Daguerrotype process for depicting the scenes they may visit and as it will be yet 3 weeks before the sailing of the Ships, and it has been stated that within that time your process will probably be divulged they consider that the importance of the occasion justifies this direct application to you. I shall hope for your early reply, and that it will be such as to enable me to announce to the Council that the apparatus and instructions will be forwarded in time (ie to arrive before the 20th August, inst.) Should you wish that the instructions should yet remain for some time secret you may send them sealed and may rely on them not being opened till the Ships shall have passed the Cape of Good Hope In that case you will have the goodness expressly to write to that effect.

In the article on The daguerreotype patent, the British Government, and the Royal Society published in History of Photography in January 1980, the most significant document discussed regarding the patent for the Daguerreotype taken out in England in 1839 by the London patent agent, Miles Berry, on behalf of Daguerre was a six page Memorial dated 30 March 1840, written by Berry to the Board of the Treasury. A proposal was put forward that the British Government purchase the rights of the Daguerreotype for the purpose of throwing it open in England for the benefit of the public. The answer given the following day was that Parliament has placed no funds at the disposal of the Treasury from which a purchase of this description could be made..
